Jason Bateman's Sandy's life falls apart pretty quick, ending up with a rivalry with his boss, Harold Cornish, and his credit cards are cut, and he gets a call from Winter Park, Florida, which he's never been to, calling to reserve a spa, and the police pull him over. Considering the police are lazy, he decides to go find this other Sandy, played by Melissa McCarthy, an actress who seems brave to shout out swear phrases on camera, and now we have a road trip action and comedy while being chased by bounty hunters. In between the road, they stop at bars, and they learn a bit about each other, especially McCarthy's so-called real name, Diana.
Now, this movie is rated R, and I don't really do restricted films much. It got a little tedious whenever a fight between Sandy and Diana ensues, but with a smart enough script that seems to poke fun at itself, I ended up really enjoying it and really laughing, especially the radio sing-along scene. And somehow, it actually has a heart without being too focused on it that it differs from action movie status. I felt that almost everything that happened in the movie could still happen in real life, yet it's somehow usually not boring, and that's one of the many reasons I enjoyed it more than Melissa McCarthy's The Heat.
Like I said, I'm not good with movies rated R generally. Identity Thief is the exception.
